WHAT’S HAPPENING

With the COVID-19 pandemic, the simple chore of shopping for groceries has now become a trip filled with dread and concern for many. But one way to beat the crowds and buy some of the best organic vegetables in the city, is to follow the Beltline to the little pop-up market run by Aluma Farm on Allene Avenue in Southwest Atlanta.

The urban farm has been running for several years, providing a local outlet for residents to buy fresh, organic veggies at a good price – in fact, there’s even a sliding scale for what you have to pay if you’re currently out of work.

Aluma Farm is an excellent example of what resilience and sustainability look like in Atlanta’s communities. Simply check their website to pre-order what you’re looking for and to see which days the farm-stand is open.
